‘Brave Men’s Blood’ is a lean but empty crime drama

Brave Men’s Blood

Written Hrafnkell Stefansson and Olaf de Fleur

Directed by Olaf de Fleur

Iceland, 2014

Structurally, it’s hard to find much fault with Brave Men’s Blood, an Icelandic film from director Olaf de Fleur, set to premiere on VOD on September 8th. It’s a crime thriller without much fat, and it does an admirable job of jumping straight into the action. At the same time, the film ends up feeling like it could’ve used more fat, as what remains is a fairly dry tale of police corruption and organized crime which doesn’t do much to stand out or warrant its existence.

Some of what little fat there is in the film can be found in the opening scenes, as a young cop, Hannes (Darri Ingolfsson), tries and fails to join a Swat team. His failure is mere character exposition, though—the meat of

Film Review: ‘Brave Men’s Blood’

Film Review: ‘Brave Men’s Blood’
A cop in Internal Affairs discovers the head of the narc unit is on the take in Olaf de Fleur’s “Brave Men’s Blood,” a by-the-book cop drama with a script that resembles any number of TV police shows. Reprising three of the major roles from Fleur’s locally popular “City State,” this sequel doesn’t demand prior knowledge (though it will increase a sense of character), since “Brave” stands alone on its wobbly feet. Solid if standard visuals and a relatively involving storyline may translate into Ok biz in Nordic territories; home play following an October opening was decent.

Gunnar Gunnerson (Ingvar E. Sigurdsson) was Iceland’s biggest drug dealer until his territory was taken over by Serbian immigrant Sergej (Zlatko Krickic). Now in the slammer, Gunnar wants revenge, so turns to rookie cop Hannes (Darri Ingolfsson), new to Internal Affairs, telling him that drug division chief Margeir

Dexter Showrunner Defends Finale, Former Showrunner Offers Alternate Ending

This past Sunday, Showtime’s dark hit drama Dexter wrapped up its eight-season run with a finale that most fans and critics, including our own Christian Law, saw as weak, unsatisfying, lazy and haphazard, but showrunner Scott Buck stands by his decision to end the show in the way he did.

Spoilers for the series finale of Dexter follow.

Following the finale’s overwhelmingly negative reception, Buck told THR that he, for one, was fully satisfied with Dexter‘s swan song, stating:

I’ve also heard that some viewers are not happy with this season, and they all have different reason for it. So much of the stuff you read is that people want the show to be like it was the first few years where Dexter would go out and kill people. If we had continued to follow that line, the show would have gotten old very fast. This

‘Dexter’ Series Finale: Dexter Finally Pays For His Sins

A storm is coming — literally. Dexter thought he could change, but all the chaos erupting around him suggests otherwise. Has he dug himself a hole as deep as Biscayne Bay, or will he find a way out of it all once more for old time’s sake? This is it folks, enjoy it.

Last episode, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was well on his way towards a happy ending. Not so fast. He forgot The Code (maybe a long time ago) and now he’s on the verge of either being murdered, being arrested, or watching his sister (Jennifer Carpenter) die. Never a dull moment, Dex!

Thankfully it seems the bullet that Debra took “bounced around,” but it missed all of her major organs — she’s going to be okay.

‘Dexter’ Recap: Vogel Picks Between Dexter & The Brain Surgeon

Dexter always talks about how family is everything to him, and then he goes and underestimates Dr. Vogel’s bond to her Brain Surgeon son, Daniel. Now look what you’ve done, Dex!

Dr. Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) turned to the dark side, after Dexter (Michael C. Hall) arrogantly underestimated the family of family ties. He simply can’t do it alone anymore — will he finally call on his own family and friends to defeat the Brain Surgeon?

Will Vogel Choose Brains Over Blood?

Vogel learned from her mistakes with her son, brain scooper aficionado Daniel (Darri Ingolfsson), in order to craft Dexter into a killing machine. And that’s why Daniel has been going around murdering a ton of people — he’s jealous! There’s so much mommy drama going on my head hurts.

Against her best judgment, Vogel is under the impression that she can help and fix her son.

In the ninth episode of Dexter’s eight and final season, we saw how Dexter (Michael C. Hall) underestimated his enemy the Brain Surgeon. With the entire series nearing an end, Michael tells HollywoodLife.com exactly why the Surgeon could be Dexter’s most vicious foe.

Michael C. Hall On Dexter’s Latest Enemy

‘Dexter’: How Will The Series End?

With just three episodes remaining in the entire series, ‘Dexter’ is racing towards its finish line. But deep into the eighth season, it still looks like the show could end in a variety of ways. Will our favorite serial killer be caught? Killed? Will he get away with everything he’s done over the past eight seasons?

Dexter, and the serial killer by the same name, had Labor Day Weekend off. Which is great, because it allowed to us catch our breath but also start spinning our wheels trying to figure out how the show will end. With just three Dexter episodes left, here are five theories, from least crazy to that-could-never-happen insane.

[Warning: Season 8 Spoilers Ahead!]

After eight seasons of Dexter – about Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a Miami Metro P.D. blood spatter expert and serial killer of serial-killers – the final three episodes are nigh.

After a season spent eliminating various former patients of Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) as suspects, her maternal feelings toward Dexter are put to the test now that we know that her supposedly dead psychopath son, Daniel (Darri Ingolfsson), is alive and murdering people under the name Oliver Saxon. Saxon has trained his sights on Dexter, who he sees as competition for his mother’s affection.

Dexter season 8 episode 9 review: Make Your Own Kind Of Music

Review Billy Grifter 27 Aug 2013 - 08:35

As Dexter nears its ultimate finale, Billy thinks we're being taken for a ride. Here's his review of Make Your Own Music...

This review contains spoilers.

8.9 Make Your Own Kind Of Music

With so few episodes to go now, when I'm watching Dexter, my concentration is split between what's happening at that moment, and where this is ultimately going. It's the second part that's a major concern now. 

The over arching theme we've been given this season is the idea of stability followed by destruction, as each time things calm down, that tranquillity isn't allowed to stand. Vogel doesn't believe that Dexter can stand with a foot in each world, and as such, he's destined to fail as a human being. Is it just me who's getting confused about her definition of a 'perfect psychopath'? Surely, it's Dexter's human side that's helped him remain free until now,
